5.

5 Months that is. And one day, to be exact. That's how long we've been on the waitlist. Honestly, we are doing good. Time has gone by fast so far. It's nice to realize we are more than halfway through the estimated wait.

We can't wait to see the face of our baby girl, but are totally trusting in God's perfect timing. We know that he already knows her face, her story, and how she'll fit into our family. That gives us alot of comfort.

Sometimes, I wonder where she is. What her birthmother is facing. Do they have nutrition? Do they have a home? Are they healthy? Then I quickly realize it does me NO GOOD to wonder. I just have to believe that God has this one. He knows it all, and probably more than we ever will about her story. He knows it. He sees it. He cares about it. He loves our girl more than we ever will be capable of. He will comfort her, and love her now, and when she's here with us. That gives us the ability to trust his timing.

Baby Girl, we're getting closer! We can't wait to see your face.

Hi Eryn! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. I ordered a couple t-shirts from you a few months ago and sometimes I wear mine to bring good luck. It hasn't worked yet but you never know, LOL! Month 5 was the stage I started to get really excited and everything started feeling real. Trust and faith have been good companions during this wait for me too. Hope the next couple of months fly by and that you see your baby's face soon!

That is beautiful. I used to wonder all the time when my baby was conceived or born or well anything. I think we cannot help it sometimes.

I've been thinking of Lucy too. I am going to be doing a balloon decore for another auction because of her. I will be thinking and praying for you guys as I work on this event.
